We combine traditional café favourites for adults and kids with seasonal, local and adventurous specials.

We are used to dealing with all kinds of dietary needs. From coeliac to vegan diets please just ask us when we are taking your order – options should be available for everyone

SUSTAINABILITY

Our little cafe sits in a national nature reserve, surrounded by sea on three sides, with rare wildlife on view every single day.

We have a duty to the Guardians of Berry Head and take many steps to play our part.

EVENTS

From time to time we love to host evening events at the Guardhouse. From quiz nights to themed restaurant evenings, and occasionally live music.

The Guardhouse Cafe is also available for private hire. The intimacy of the venue, combined with the beautiful surroundings offer a wonderful setting for any event.

SSSH! The Stolen Seagull Scavenger Hunt Art Trail, Summer 2022
21 July - 11 September 2022

Many of you may have noticed a peculiar sight scattered around Brixham popping up in July….a hundred seagulls, each one unique and beautifully hand-decorated by schools, community groups and artists across the English Riviera. This is part of The Stolen Seagull Scavenger Hunt across Torbay (AKA The SSSH!…Seagull Project). Each seagull has its own name and QR code and can be found by using a free to download trail map revealing each of the secret locations. These could be local attractions, museums, theatres, cafes, galleries, libraries and other local businesses. 
Who can find the most seagulls this summer??

Here’s the seagull at our cafe, Devonia, who we have put to work during our busy summer season!

The project has been supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, which has helped connect local artists with schools across Torbay, promoting creativity and teamwork. It has also allowed many new cultural partnerships to be formed. For example, four of the seagulls have been decorated by local artists in collaboration with the Artizan Gallery, as part of a Sea Shanty Project with the Princess Theatre. 
The project is being delivered by the Riviera Education Trust and is aimed at highlighting creative career routes with artists going into schools to inspire young children. Local Artist Anna Boland, and Gaby Lovatt from Participate Arts CIC delivered arts workshops at schools and colleges across the Bay, meaning there are some stunning birds waiting to be found. 
Tonic Creatives are delighted to have been asked to put the trail together, which you will be able to download. Please share any images with us using the tag #sssh_seagull 
Lets get ready for a summer of Gull Power!

Sorry everyone, we've sold 60 barbecue tickets which is about our capacity for the evening. You are welcome to come for drinks and music but at this time we can't offer food for those who haven't already got confirmed tickets. We will start a waiting list (9 people are on it since 2pm this afternoon) and contact you if we get cancellations.

How do I get 3 tickets for this please?

How do I book this please?

How much will the tickets for the BBQ cost? Thanks in advance!

Do you have any spaces for tomorrow please?

Guardhouse Café hi, what are the timings for food service please? Wondering whether it will work with a baby in tow

Can we come on a Thursday evening even if it's for just a drink or is it bookings for meals only?
